Exploring New Institutional and Governance Models for Integrated Mobility (GA)OCT 2017Rich Weaver/Zach Smith

​Public transportation agencies across the country are leveraging improvements in transportation technology and redefining   how their agencies manage mobility. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is working to ensure that these new mobility services are accessible to all riders and connect them to essential services that include: employment, healthcare, education, and recreation. To support these efforts, The National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) hosted a peer exchange with transit systems to develop scenarios for governance and institutional models for these integrated mobility concepts. These peer exchanges are intended to be a forum for transit agencies to look at how different mobility management scenarios could evolve, identify opportunities to develop and implement concepts such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and to build a framework of strategies and scenarios to guide transit agencies within this new mobility ecosystem. ​Minutes from the Peer Exchange are available here.​ 

Transportation Transformation Summit addresses future of mobility in Denver (CO)SEPT 2018Bill Sirois
On September 13, 2018, RTD hosted Transportation Transformation, a half-day summit to discuss the agency’s role and intentions in addressing the future of mobility in the Denver metro region. As innovative technologies like bike-sharing, micromobility, and ride sourcing services are changing the way people get around, RTD is taking a proactive approach to participate in how these evolving trends are creating new and expanded opportunities for public transportation. Over 125 regional transportation mobility partners attended the event to engage in a conversation about mobility trends and the current state of practice, local projects underway in Denver, and RTD’s plans to lead a regional initiative to determine how public transportation will integrate with Denver’s changing mobility landscape. ​View highlights from the breakouts and the entire summit (VIDEO) here​>>

Peer Exchange: The Rise of the Curb: Expanding Mobility While Protecting Space  `September 2018National Center for Mobility Management

​Complete Streets are an essential component of mobility management. Transit agencies are increasingly recognizing the value of curb management as new mobility options and travel patterns lead to increased and varied demands for this space. The curbside facilitates access to essential activities such as goods, people, enhanced mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities, and increased community activation. However, there is more competition for the curb as traditional bus service competes with transportation network companies, dockless bikes and electric scooters, pedestrians, and soon, autonomous vehicles that necessitate universal design concepts and other policies that develop new and enhanced priorities for curbside use and expanded mobility hubs.

Improved curbside management and creating more mobility hubs will make it easy to access a wide range of travel options for different trip types. Considering local context, a relative prioritization of travel modes and right-of-way functions can be developed on a corridor-by-corridor or even block-by-block basis.

Peer Exchange: Creating Partnerships to Improve Mobility for All Riders August 2018National Center for Mobility Management

​Public transportation agencies across the country are leveraging improvements in transportation technology and redefining how their agencies manage mobility. A report from the American Public Transportation Association Shared Mobility and the Transformation of Public Transit suggests various regulatory enhancements, institutional realignments and models of public-private engagement to ensure all users have equitable access to information resources, streamlined payment options, and improved, integrated mobility services. 

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is also working to ensure that these new mobility services are accessible to all riders and connect them to essential services that include: employment, healthcare, education, and recreation. To support these efforts, The National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) hosts peer exchanges with transit systems to identify best practices for these integrated mobility concepts. These peer exchanges are intended to be a forum for transit agencies to share promising practices and the challenges they face in implementing innovative solutions to mobility. Participants in these discussions will include senior-level transit industry leaders who are engaged in new advancing innovative mobility options within their systems.  View the summary notes here >>​ 


NCMM: Planning Forum for Peer Exchange on New Institutional and Governance ModelsSeptember 2016National Center for Mobility Management

Public transportation agencies across the country are leveraging improvements in transportation technology and redefining how their agencies manage mobility. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is working to ensure that these new mobility services are accessible to all riders and connect them to essential services that include: that include: employment, healthcare, education, and recreation. To support these efforts, The National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) will host two peer exchanges with transit systems to develop scenarios for governance and institutional models for these integrated mobility concepts. These peer exchanges are intended to be a forum for transit agencies to look at how different mobility management scenarios could evolve and identify the best approaches for how these new mobility services models can be integrated within existing transit services. 

In advance of these peer exchanges, NCMM and the FTA will host a half-day forum at the 2016 APTA Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA to discuss the current roles of public transportation agencies and governments in implementing these new initiatives, hear what agencies are currently doing to integrate new mobility services, and develop a list of discussion questions that should be raised during the peer exchanges. Participants in this discussion will include senior leadership of the Federal Transit Administration to discuss their agency’s role in this space as well as senior-level transit industry leaders who are engaged in new partnerships to advance new mobility concepts within their organization.

NCMM: Lessons Learned from Mobility Summits and advancing mobility managementNovember 2018National Center for Mobility Management

​Many transit agencies are embracing the concept of ‘mobility management’, which is a strategic approach to designing and delivering transportation services that starts and ends with the customer. It begins with a community vision in which the entire transportation network - public transit, private operators, cycling and walking, volunteer drivers, and others - works together with customers, planners, and stakeholders to deliver the transportation options that best meet the community's needs. When implemented, mobility management can move transit agencies away from their roles as fixed-route service operators and toward collaboration with other transportation providers. The idea behind this approach is to create a full range of well-integrated mobility services within a community, that meets the needs of all customers better today and in the future.  

Hosting a mobility summit is the prime forum for transit agencies to discuss their agency’s role and intentions in addressing the future of mobility in their region. As innovative technologies like bike-sharing, microtransit, and TNCs are changing the way people get around, transit agencies and their partners at the city and regional level are taking a proactive approach to plan and anticipate how these evolving trends are creating new and expanded opportunities for public transportation.
